From which seller did you order your monitor?

Again, this is a strange listing, "2B Overclock" normally it would say "2B OC".

If you check the history of this thread and on other forums, whether you pay $300 to $1000 the results are the same. Either you can reach the 120Hz mark or have to run slightly less of a refresh rate. The only time I could agree what you stated is if on their sale they state the monitor is certified and garuanteed to run at 120Hz. None of them do, they always say it is possible, but due to drivers and video cards, results will vary.

Nah man. Catleaps used to go to 135hz. This has been going on for years and they have been changed without notice multiple times.

Hi I'm just about to buy one of these I think!

I just want to know a few things. I've owned a Crossover 2720MDP GOLD for a couple of years so I know how good these screens are. I want to start gaming using my PC so it's time for an upgrade! I just want to double check if my 2GB GTX 660 Ti is up to doing 120hz? And is ebay the best place to buy one if I'm in the UK still? I got my crossover from accessorieswhole on ebay.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Perfect-Pixel-YAMAKASI-Catleap-Q270-2B-Extreme-OC-120Hz-IPS-1440p-PC-Monitor-/140922305094

I am starting to use my PC for gaming instead of buying a nextgen console so I would upgrade my card if I needed to.

Thanks for any help smile.gif

Well you go ahead and pay the extra that they are asking and prove me wrong that I doubt they are upgraded then smile.gif. I don't know what forums (besides this one) you are reading but when I did my research, I've only read one person who had been able to get 135Hz, and that was with SLi at the time. Not all Catleaps were at 135Hz, 120Hz was and is still obtainable, still just luck of the draw.

It is possible when the Catleaps came out 2 years ago, the product had more quality to them, but since have cheaped out on parts that connect to the panel to save money and well....to make more money.

I've got an 660TI also. Right now personally would tend to a Qnix QX2710 instead of the Yamakasi as i have both of them delivered on monday. I've got the Qnix from accessorieswhole and it is great. Could even change it to 120hz without a problem. I still need to test if it is suitable for gaming but my old Achieva Shimian Multi Monitor wasn't bad for gaming neither. green-sum right now isn't my favorite seller...

With all these brands and model numbers, I'm getting so confused. The Qnix is a PLS panel correct? I thought when you overdrive the PLS panel it looks like crap even though it can do 120Hz?

In my ebay link the Qnix is listed with an AH-VA panel.
I still have more testing to do as the Qnix was supposed to be my secondary screen with HDMI for my IPTV receiver.
As the Yamakasi is such a letdown i need to focus more on the Qnix.

Thanks Ben. Can I ask what was the problem with green-sum? Why do you prefer the Qnix can I ask? Overclocking is the most important thing as this is for gaming so want that to be guaranteed.

Ah ok, like I said it's hard to keep up what panel is used with what model # and brand.

The only thing that would hold me back from getting that monitor is the HDMI port. Usually multiple inputs cause input lag. Most don't really notice it or care and that includes me, but now that I compare my Catleap to my Dell 2709W I can clearly see what input lag is all about.
